Controllers - C5 Compact

High processing power

The CG5 uses the latest generation of industrial PC’s APC820 with Core2 Duo technology CPU which is capable of obtaining high performances with low energetic consumption.

Energy saving

  • Lowest consumption in stand by, low consumption during operations
  • Cooling system proportional to control unit’s operations
  • Energy network recover system with a high dynamic content program

Flexibility and reliability

The new generation of field busses based on Hilscher technology, integrated by B&R in their remote I/O X20 family, guarantees a flexible and reliable interface in every customer application. Modular interfaces are available, such as digital I/O, analog I/O and for many kinds of position transducer encoder, resolver, etc.


Safe robot controller models allow a safety rated management of the robot motion (joint or cartesian mode) and speed through sensors, offering advanatges in terms of smaller layouts and absence of physical fences. We provide the safety of your automatic cell without affecting your productivity.

Modularity /expandibility

Modular system for drives up to 13 axes in the base cabinet function of the power, and the robot model.

Simultaneous management of several robots

Hardware architecture designed to manage up to 16 axes in “multi-arm” configuration with application box.

Case and cable

  • 65% smaller than the standard version, lighter and easier to integrate
  • Power saving, 50% less installed power than the standard version
  • Runs up to 8 axes depending on the robot model
  • Also available in safe version
  • Also available in open controller version
